    So the screen wouldn't wobble when I would be using a pen and they would find some space for SD card reader beneath it like they did on Surface Pro 4.

    I'm having trouble picturing what you mean? Like... as if the screen was the SP4 and the kickstand popped out of the back of the screen? Interesting...

    Do you think they have it openning wide enough to use the pen comfortably? Kickstand or not.

    Yes, exactly like on the Surface Pro 4.

    You can see here at around 1:15:00 that it can be opened quite wide at least in my opinion that should be enough.

    My wishlist will be the keyboard area made of a normal material like metal, plastic etc instead of Alcantara which will become messy after using for some years.

    I do wish it had a 360 hinge. Maybe USB-C/thunderbolt too for future-proofing, but not at the expense of USB-A.
    And, colour options worldwide for all models! Come on, Microsoft...

    If you really wanted you could get access to playstore via emulators like BlueStacks, but that's not what Microsoft wants nor what is going to happen (un)fortunately.

    I would wish for a 360° hinge. I am currently using a Spectre x360 and I love the hinge.
    I think, without the 360° hinge, the pen support is pretty useless.

    An USB-Type C + Thunderbold port would be nice for charging, docking stations, etc... But I guess they had to surrender this to not anger too many partners (HP, Lenovo,...)

    What? Are certain colors restricted by specs and/or location?

    Microsoft has a good opportunity here to come out with some dongles using the Surface Connect port. Have a dongle to give us a number of USB-C ports, a dongle with some display out ports, and even a Mini Dock. My only disappointment with the Surface Laptop is the lack of ports, and I think Microsoft has a good opportunity to fix that.

    USB-C, more standard RAM at $999, and a free travel case or shell thrown in for people who put it in their backpacks.

    There already is a Surface Dock out there, however it doesn't come with USB-C ports (I slightly doubt it that it could be useful) but it does have gigabit ethernet port, more USB-A ports and a few Mini DisplayPorts.

    thunderbolt 3 for sure.
    apart from that may if you could replace the keyboard surface really easily without spending too much I would be delighted.

    PS Im worried about what happens after two years of using the keyboard with food held hands

    they really need to start off with their 8GB configs at $999.

    You can get the different colours only with the i5 8GB RAM config else you are stuck with the platinum shade.

    USB-C. Then support Thunderbolt through that.

    Also start with 8GB of RAM. 4GB is awful.
